I am so excited my friend Rachel who I played volleyball with 9!!! years ago took some family pictures for us.  She is a wonderful photographer!  Go and check out her blog for more pictures :)

Danny is leaving :(

That was kinda fun scheduling posts for the last week.  My dad said, "um how did you post stuff to the blog while we were at Bear Lake"  hehe.  Anyway now that those are all up I thought I would post a picture from Bear Lake this weekend.  

We had so much fun playing on the boat, in the sand and in the water!  The kids especially had fun playing with their daddy who is leaving this afternoon, tear.  I am staying in Utah for 2 more weeks.  We will miss you daddy!  Love you :)

park and pond

After we visited the barn we went to a close by park to let the kids play.  It was fun because there is also a pond near by :)

Oh that cheesy smile slays me!

Cute, until we ask Mason to sit closer to his sister...
Then melt down, haha

run run run!

Watching Mason go down the slide
Lily's turn :)

red barn

I was on a search for a red barn to take pictures for a family.  I found one, but wanted to test things out (light etc)  So I took Danny and the kids to take a few pictures.  I didn't really plan it out with clothes and such (Lily in pink pjs against a red barn, oh well)  But I think they are cute, and Danny is a good sport!

walk and a bridge

It seems like it takes a while for Danny and I to explore this beautiful area that we live in (mostly because of me I am sure)  Anyway I remember going on this trail with a friend when I was pregnant with Mason so Danny and I went to find it! 

The highlight of the trip was this bridge!  Mason tried to find anything to throw off of it!

Looking good in his sunglasses!

Practicing his throwing skills

Lily hanging out :)

We finally went for a walk :)

and then we found some big rocks!

Lily liked to eat her sweater :)

Back to the bridge.  Can you see all the bugs off to the left, yuck!

Hi pretty girl!

Mason was really sad when we left, hehe, and I love how he put his sunglasses on backwards!

markers markers are so fun :)

I am in the primary presidency in my ward in NY.  One of my job responsibilities to to plan/execute the quarterly primary activities.  On a Friday the day before one of these activities we had a ward activity at the church building.  Danny was running around helping set up and things, so I went to the library to get last minute preparations ready for the activity the next day.  I sat Mason on the counter with some markers and paper (so Lily wouldn't get them), and let Lily down on the floor to crawl and explore.  I had to make copies and find pictures and I was having a hard time finding what I needed.  And lets just say I was VERY focused...

Lily was totally destroying things, pulling everything down with in reach eating paper etc.  I just let her do it because I needed to get things done and I would clean it up later.  Then the Bishop walked in to get something, I was totally embarrassed that I let the place get such a mess.  He was really nice and just laughed and said "hey I understand, I have 5 kids!"

A few minutes later Danny walked in, mumbled something and I told him I was almost done and would bring the kids out in a minute.  Well I finished and found everything I needed then looked up to this:

This was actually taken the next day because I forgot my camera

Hahaha I didn't even know what to think... He has never done this before (ok that is a lie, he did it once before, I should have known!).  When I look back I realized he kept saying, "look mom snake"  and when Danny came into the library he informed me that Mason was drawing all over himself.  But like I said I was focused!

We love when our friends come to play, and of course one of our favorite things to play with is bubbles!  

Kaylie is such a nice friend to Lily :)

No photo-shop manipulation, just a little magic :)

Now it is Kaylie's turn to blow some bubbles :)
